75. As I said, I think, that can be therapeutic also.
anti-stress helps. Stress yourself too much and you stand more chance of getting sick. Stress prevention is a good thing. It's always fun when someone wants "only" a relaxation massage. I get both kinds, at different times for different reasons. Sometimes it just feels good, makes me feel better and better able to deal with life. Which is good. Sometimes it is to repair repetitive usage injuries.
